Research Interests

History

I am interested in the medical history of antiquity. I published on questions of historical urology, rheumatology, dermatology, venereology, occupational medicine, as well as on diseases of civilization and affluence. Over time, I extended the chronological frame by also researching the medical history of the Early Modern Period. The most recent historical papers cover also the 19th and 20th century.

Ethics

I am interested in questions of modern medical ethics while my focus is on the ethics of digitalization of medicine. I do ethical research in algorithmic decision-making, artificial intelligence, and informed consent in an age of digital medicine.
